    1. I honestly don't think Hollywood hates religion and religious people,

    2. I think they just don't care.


    Both statements mean the same thing. Anyone who does not recognize the the various, small things that move together, creating decay and immorality in this society is, well, contributing to the decay.

    It was used for obvious violations of the rules, not because somebody couldn't speak english

    If the kid was mexican, he probabaly KNEW english, yet was not speaking it just to piss the teacher off - that kind of kid should be whacked!

    And before yal'' go gettin yer panyties wadded up, you should know that Mexicans do this all the time - I had a bunch of em tearing up my roof one day (they were suppsed to be next door - idiots), anyway, as I'm askinf what they're doing on MY roof - none of em could speak english until I told 'em maybe someone ought to learn or I'll call the cops...DANG if they did not start speaking english immediately.

    And yes, mexican "children" do the same thing...makes em feel powerful I guess...

    This was e-mailed to me the other day - Author unknown

    A person wrote a letter to the White House complaining about the treatment of a captive taken during the Afghanistan war. Attached is a copy of a letter they received back:

    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Washington, D.C. 20016 Dear Concerned Citizen:

    Thank you for your recent letter roundly criticizing our treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda detainees currently being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    My administration takes these matters seriously, and your opinion was heard loud and clear here in Washington.

    You'll be pleased to learn that, thanks to the concerns of citizens like you, we are creating a new division of the Terrorist Retraining Program, to be called the "Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers" program, or LARK for short. In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided to place one terrorist under your personal care.

    Your personal detainee has been selected and scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence next Monday.

    Ali Mohammed Ah bin Had (you can just call him Ahmed) is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of admonishment. It will likely be necessary for you to hire some assistant caretakers. We will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with those you so strongly recommended in your letter.

    Ahmed's meal requirements are simple, but we strongly suggest serving meals that do not require utensils, particularly knives and forks. Also, these should be "one-handed" foods; Ahmed will not eat with his left hand since he uses it to wipe himself after purging his bowels (which he will do in your yard) - but look on the bright side.. no increase in the toilet paper bill.

    He generally bathes quarterly with the change of seasons, assuming that it rains, and he washes his clothes simultaneously. This should help with your water bill. Also, your new friend has a really bad case of body lice that hasn't been completely remedied. Please heed the large orange notice attached to your detainee's cage: "Does not play well with others."

    Although Ahmed is sociopathic and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his "attitudinal problem" will help him overcome these character flaws.

    Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. He will bite you, given the chance, but his rabies test came back negative, so not to worry. We understand that you plan to offer counseling and home schooling. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We do not suggest that you ask him to demonstrate these skills at your next yoga group. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless (in your opinion) this might offend him.

    Ahmed will not wish to interact with your wife or daughters (except sexually) since he views females as a subhuman form of property. However, he will be eager to assist with the education of your sons; have available for their use several copies of the Q'uran. Oh - and rest assured he absolutely loves animals, especially cats and dogs. He prefers them roasted, but raw is fine, too, if they aren't more than 2 or 3 days dead.

    Thanks again for your letter. We truly appreciate it when folks like you, who know so much, keep us informed of the proper way to do our job. We think this watching over each other's shoulder is such a good way for people to interact that we will be sending a team of federal officials with expertise in your line of work to your place of business soon, just to help you do your job better. Don't be concerned that they have the power to close your business, seize your property, and arrest you for any violation of the 4,850,206 laws, codes, regulations and rules that apply to your profession. They're really there just to make sure you're doing everything the proper way. That is what you wanted, right?

    Residents have complained about water wells going dry because of pumping on neighboring property, she said. She also called bonds required to cover cleanup costs "woefully minimal."

    "There is going to be a huge taxpayer liability here for the cost of cleanup and reclamation that the government hasn't even begun to account for," Morrison said.



    Drilling for natural gas or crude does not "dry up" water wells.

    And requiring drillers to pay huge reclamation/clean up fees "JUST IN CASE" of an accident, is crippling the energy industry at a time when we can ill afford the dependance we now have on foreign oil.

    I believe homeland security outweighs alarmists concerns given by folks who know absolutely NOTHING about the oil industry and the technical advancements of he industry.

    As far as I was concerned, the 2nd Amendment gave us the right to protect ourselves against invading armies, not the right to buy a gun and keep it under our beds.

    I'm glad the author changed her mind.

    I would ask others who believe in this skewed interpretation of our cocnstitutional right to bear arms:

    How in the world would we protect ourselves againts "invading armies" (and other, perhaps domestic terrorists) if we dont keep a gun "under the bed" (in our posession)?

    Do those who feel this way think we can count on "the government" to "issue" us weapons as soon as they are needed?

    Might I ask WHY?

    We can allow or disallow whatever we want.

    Why should'nt the United States be proud of its own culture, its own God, its own creed? Our christian culture created the freedoms all religions enjoy here, so it can not possibly be a violation of the "rights" of other religions to RESPECT what the USA stands for and quit belly-aching about "fairness".

    It should be good enough that this christian nation ALLOWS anyone to practice whatever religion they want. We should not allow other non-christain religions, or atheists to tell us if we can or can not post the 10 commandmnets, or if we can or can not put God in our pledge, or what is or is not equal rights.

    We the People decide the rights of immigrants - not the immigrants.

    I understand (and respect) the point you were making (I dont want Islam in this country, let alone in our schools), but thats the point the ACLU uses.

    I mean, why should we HAVE to allow all religions to be in our schools or anywhere else?

    The United States should not feel like we must give voice to all religions just because we ALLOW everyone to practice their own, nor should we be afraid to be what we are-a nation founded on christianity.

    I think we need a Mexican/Mexico product boycott - do they sell us anything we wont buy?

    What's noteworthy is these same clowns would be yelping from the rafters if Republicans tried to get away with such a comparison about Democrats.

    Forget about comparisons..Republicans can't get away with telling the TRUTH about democraps..they are all so, so..so..vile.

    The best thing that could happen to the socialistic state of California, is for all productive people to leave. All businesses desiring profit should leave as well.

    When there are no longer workers to pay for the non-workers, or businesses to pay for evry stinking personal personal problem . .the Liberals will scream for them to come back at any cost.

    >>>Human rights groups have expressed concern that the Iraqis lack the technical ability to prosecute Saddam fairly on their own

    What in the world does "technical ability" have to do with it? Are they saying that the Iraquis do not have the means to televise it world-wide, and would the trial be less fair if it is not broadcast world-wide?

    So-called human rights groups need to STFU - they have no moral authority (same to you Annan)

    >>>Again I will say it, Bush is circumventing the will and best interest of the American people in favor of a foreign power..

    >>>It can't be said enough.

    Bush seems to think that mexican interlopers are actually contibuting to this country. (I'm sure a minor % are in some small, insignificant way) But their real contribution is racial tension and citizen unrest--

    Citizens can not be expected to support law-breakers anymore, nor should we put up with un protected borders.

    The only thing that will stop our opressive government is a total refusal to pay taxes supporting anything that is not in the PEOPLES opinion - constitutional.

    Not that I would suggest such a thing...but it WOULD work.

  • Restrictions take effect for new drivers Jan. 1

    Young people need to learn with adults in the seat next to them.Maybe 18 should be the starting age to drive.<<


    When today's young drivers have a few years under their belt (twenty may be enough), they will understand these new restrictions are perfectly understandable and sane.

    When I was younger, the roads were not so dangerous, folks seemed more willing to follow the rules, "road rage" was not up to murderous levels.

    I think this is an excellent restriction that I'd like to see all states implement. Youngsters can't have everything they want when underage - driving is NOT a "right" and cars are not toys. Our indulged youth wont like this, but I love it!
